Lil Wayne has made Billboard history surpassing Elvis

First published in National Entertainment News © by

Lil Wayne is not only making rap history, he's rock 'n' roll history - the rapper has surpassed Elvis Presley as the leading male with the most entries on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.

The star now has 109 songs on that chart with the debut of Game's song Celebration, where he is a guest alongside Chris Brown, Tyga and Wiz Khalifa.

Of his 109 charted songs, only 42 are led by Lil Wayne; 67 are songs where he is the featured act.

Elvis totalled 108 songs on the Hot 100 since it launched in 1958.

But his career kicked off before that and several of his songs - like Heartbreak Hotel - could not be included in his total number.

The Glee cast has the most Hot 100 entries with 204.
